A while back I painted a laundry basket
with a mix of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and
Vintage Market And Design paint.
My next step was to age it down further
with some clear and dark wax.
I love the color of the baguette tin basket I
bought at Three French Hens in Wildwood MO.
I tried to match that aged color.
Here they are together...
I used a mix of Annie Sloan's dark wax
with Miss Mustard Seed's clear wax...
No reason. Just the first ones I grabbed when
I reached into my bin of waxes.
Here's a close-up of the basket with just paint...
and with dark wax...
The wax made it darker and "browned up" the
gray of the basket.
I like it against red for Summer...
and with the Fall colors, which are my favorite.
The throws are new from Pottery Barn.
I like the look of them, but don't think they
will hold up very well if actually used.
I don't think I'm done with the basket.
I'm thinking of adding some stenciled numbers
to the front that I've seen some others do.
Thanks for dropping by!
